Knitting one sock is fun and rewarding, but finishing its partner can become a chore that leaves well-intentioned knitters suffering from “second sock syndrome.” With this two-at-a-time technique you can easily finish a full pair of socks on the same day. Step-by-step photographs illustrate how to cast on and knit two socks together on one long circular needle, whatever the pattern or shape. Lonely, abandoned single socks are now a thing of the past!

Praise For 2-at-a-Time Socks: Revealed Inside. . . The Secret of Knitting Two at Once on One Circular Needle; Works for any Sock Pattern!

“Knitters know the first sock finished brings great joy, quickly followed by the dismay that there’s still a second one that has to be completed.  The second-sock syndrome is over, thanks to Melissa Morgan-Oakes.  The author of 2-at-a-Time Socks shows knitters how, with one circular needle, two socks can be completed at once.  Hurray!”

“Not only can you learn how to knit socks on a circular needle, you will learn how to knit them at the same time, ensuring they are exactly the same when finished.  No more second-sock syndrome!  The hardcover book has a wire binding so that it lies perfectly flat when open.  As if all the great instructions weren’t enough, there are 17 patterns included for men, women, and children.  Once you try a single 40” needle, you might just give up your dpns forever!”
